Texas Forts Trail Region

Once the wild frontier where explorers and frontiersmen clashed with the land and Native Americans. Come hear the stories and explore the places where history was made—and make your own memories! Visit a historic site, tour a museum, or check out the local sites, shops, and eateries. The “trail” is a recommended 650-mile driving loop within a 29-county region of Central West Texas. The trail highlights the largest Spanish presidio built in Texas and eight historic pre- and post-Civil War frontier forts and the communities and attractions that surround them.
